You may have noticed a new feature that we added to the web site this week: the HERI Poll of the Month. We will change the question each month and post a short blog about the previous month’s results. This is one way we hope not only to connect with our CIRP representatives, affiliated scholars, fellow researchers, and other members of the community but also to learn more about the ever-growing CIRP family.
This month’s poll asks about how you prefer to survey students (web, paper, or a combination of web and paper). Please don’t be alarmed – we have no plans to do away with paper surveys. In fact, the 2015 Your First College Year survey and the 2014-15 College Senior Survey will once again have a paper option. We are in the final negotiation phase with a vendor for these surveys, and we continue to offer a paper option for the CIRP Freshman Survey as we have for the past 49 years. (Next year is our big 50th…stayed tuned for more details!)
So take a few seconds and tell participate in the poll (it’s good for survey karma), and be sure to check back in early August for the results.
